DEO office requests DRM Sealdah Div to arrange special train services

first_imgKolkata: The District Election Officer (DEO) of South 24-Parganas has written to the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of Sealdah division urging him to make arrangements of some special train services for smooth disposal of huge number of polling personnel in connection with the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections in Bengal on Sunday, May 19.”After the conclusion of the poll process and subsequent submission of poll-related materials like EVMs, VVPATs and the like at the corresponding receiving centres, the voting personnel will start returning to their residences, many of which are located in far away scattered places from the South 24-Parganas district in which a number of booths are located in remote areas. Such large scale movement cannot be done by buses. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja”So we have sought additional train services,” a senior official in the DEO office in the district said. The last local train from Diamond Harbour to Sealdah leaves Diamond Harbour at 22.15 pm. However, on Sundays, there are times when it remains cancelled. The DEO has urged the DRM to ensure the services of this local train at 22.15 or 22.30 pm and also make arrangements for a special train at 1 am on Monday to cater to the rush of the polling personnel. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayDEO Y Ratnakara Rao has also urged the DRM to make similar arrangements for plying of the last trains leaving from Baruipur, Lakshmikantapur, Namkhana and Canning stations for Sealdah and special trains late at night to manage the heavy rush. It may be mentioned that the entire Gosaba Assembly constituency under Joynagar Parliamentary constituency that has 257 booths and nearly half of Patharpratima Assembly constituency with 136 out of 293 booths are located in remote riverine locations. The district administration’s elaborate arrangements have ensured that polling personnel reach these places 48 hours in advance. “We have made all DCRCs weather-proof taking lessons from the 2009 Lok Sabha elections when 200 EVMs were damaged due to inclement weather and machines were procured from Hyderabad on a war footing to address the crisis situation. “A large part of the district, being located in the coastal belt, experiencing natural calamity is always on the cards. So we need to be prepared fully in advance,” the senior official added. The Eastern Railway authorities have already responded and have assured to make the necessary arrangements.last_img read more

So what are the chances well see an Irishman or anybody head

first_imgA ‘Mars One’ rover at work (Image: the casual observer, the plan may appear more than a little unlikely. Many space experts have also scorned the proposals — in particular the projected cost, which is just a fraction of NASA’s estimates for a Mars mission. Ethical issues have also been raised, as it’s been suggested the life-span of the successful applicants could be limited to less than a year — even if they manage to complete the perilous put some of the problems raised to Dr Roche (he is an astrophysicist, after all) beginning with the concerns of retired German astronaut Ulrich Walter, who warned that the probability of even reaching the planet’s surface could be as low as 30 per cent — the chances of surviving more than three months, worse still.“Well, it’s such a new area no-one’s really certain yet whose estimates are trustworthy.“The reason Mars One deserves to be taken seriously is that — it’s not just a disparate group of people who don’t know what they’re doing. The founder Bas Lansdorp is an engineer with a background in wind energy — he might not have a background in space exploration, but all the experts he’s brought in are the best in their areas.“One of the issues they keep bringing up is that when people comment outside their field, they generally express concern. So if it’s an astronaut he might say the equipment isn’t there or the spacecraft isn’t there; if you talk to the engineers they’ll say ‘the equipment is there, but we’re not sure about the reality TV show business model’.” How about the costs issue? Six billion dollars is obviously a lot of money — but it still seems a little on the low side considering we’re talking about a mission to another heavenly body?“The reason for the discrepancy between NASA’s estimates and this mission is purely down to the lack of the return trip.“Within space exploration at the moment the biggest financial issue is the return — trying to carry enough fuel to mount a return journey, and to do what they call a ‘hard launch’ from the surface of the planet.“The NASA mission is thirty years down the line and around 50 times more expensive — that’s purely down to the fact that at the moment we don’t have anything that could launch to take people home. The six billion that Mars One is proposing is based on existing technology — we just can’t bring them back. ‘STRANDED IN EARTH orbit’, ‘lost on arrival’, ‘flew past planet’, ‘lost near Phobos’… If you happen to be one of the thousand-plus candidates chosen for the 2025 ‘Mars One’ mission, perhaps you’d be best advised not to opt for ‘humankind’s 54-year history of attempted Mars missions’ as your choice of subject for bedtime reading.Failures far outweigh the successes over the course our stormy half century affair with the Red Planet. However, that didn’t deter almost a quarter of a million people (including around 850 in Ireland) from applying for the chance to be one of just 20 chosen for the planned 55 million kilometre voyage.1,058 hopefuls made it past the opening round, including three based in Ireland — of whom, the most high-profile has been Dublin-based scientist Dr Joseph Roche. The mild-mannered astrophysicist has been in high demand by media outlets since his name emerged on the ‘long-list’ at the start of the month, and he’s been dutifully doing the rounds ever since answering questions on the ambitious plan (as it’s a one-way mission, the most frequent question so far has been ‘why?’).Mars bound? Dr Joseph Roche [Image: Science Gallery]The initiative of entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp and scientist Arno Wielders, both from The Netherlands, the privately funded project aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars by 2025. The initial crew of four will be followed by four more the year after that, with more missions flying out at two-year intervals until 2032.Of course, it’s not quite that simple — organisers estimate they need to raise around $6 billion in funding. It’s planned the project will raise most of the cash needed by selling TV rights for a reality show tracking the progress of the candidates.Ahead of blast-off for the manned mission, there’s be a series of other launches — of satellites, supplies and finally ‘rovers’ designed to set up the outpost living quarters and other equipment. Check out the Mars One ‘roadmap’ > Roche is expecting to hear more news on the interview process from ‘mission control’ in April. Before then, he has to submit a series of medical test results to prove he’s up to the task.(Youtube: RTÉ)The final 40 candidates will be selected in the next two years or so, coinciding with the start of the TV show. Viewers from all over the world will decide on the first four people to be sent.It’s planned the cameras will also follow the progress of the resettlers as they conduct experiments, grow their own food, and generally strive to stay happy and healthy on a planet far, far away. An initial sketch for the Mars colony [Image: Mars One]The ‘Big Brother’ FactorThe television aspect is essential to the success of the mission — and while raising billions of dollars obviously won’t be easy, a look at the amount generated by sales of TV rights for the Olympics at least puts the scale of the task in some context:[Chart: Olympic Marketing Fact File] At the moment, according to Mars One, the TV rights issue is still the subject of “ongoing negotiations” with media companies. The project will also use crowd-funding as a means of raising the cash needed, while it’s hoped more sponsors and partners can be added the roster of Mars One supporters as the project progresses.The development that — to date — perhaps best demonstrates the seriousness of the founders’ intentions took place last month, as Mars One signed a $250,000 (€180,000) contract with US group Lockheed Martin Space Systems to build a concept landing module for an unmanned test mission in five years time.(Youtube: MarsOneProject)While there are plenty of high-profile critics (amongst them, the chief engineer of NASA) Mars One also has an impressive list of advisers and supporters on board, including Nobel Prize winning theoretical physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft and the co-creator of ‘Big Brother’ Paul Römer.The media interest generated worldwide as countries keep track of their candidates’ progress will almost certainly keep the cash flowing in in the short term — but once TV strand of the project is up and running, what are the chance of this ever [I’m afraid there really is no better way to phrase this] getting off the ground?Dr Roche, for one, is under no illusions:Clearly, this is very far from being a nailed on thing — but you’d never go into a project like this without expecting setbacks along the way, up to the prospect of complete failure.As a scientist I’d really have to say the chances are remote, but I think the Mars One plan is wonderfully ambitious. [Image: Mars One]*Jeff Wayne is not a scientist, obviously.

Gillard apologises for Xenophon slur

first_imgJulia Gillard published a personal apology to Nick Xenophon this week for an incorrect claim she made about the senator in her auto­biography My Story.The apology appeared as a paid advertisement in several Australian newspapers including Thursday’s The Australian. The former PM wrote that in the book’s first edition, an allegation appeared that Senator Xenophon was “infamously excluded from univer­sity for a period as punishment for stuffing a ballot box full of voting papers he had somehow secured”.Ms Gillard said that she retracted the allegation and “sincerely apologise[d] to Nick Xenophon for any harm, embarrassment and distress caused”. The SA senator said that he welcomed the apology. “I’m glad it’s over. Her remarks­ were not only incredibly wrong but also very hurtful. I’m glad she agreed to the apology and I wish her well,” he told News Corp.“Despite this disagreement, I respect her for her positive achievements. I’m sorry she just got this so completely wrong.”Random House, who published the autobiography, reached a confidential cash settlement with Senator Xenophon over the allegation in February.Source: The Australian Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Dark Phoenix Trailer Released More Marvel Movie News

first_imgThe X-Men aren’t part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet, and it’ll be a while before we see any Mutants team up with (whatever’s left of) The Avengers onscreen. Until then, the rebooted X-Men series is continuing on as a separate entity. After X-Men: Days of Future Past retconned all the terrible decisions made by X-Men: The Last Stand, the slate was clean. They could adapt any story from the comics they wanted. We got X-Men: Apocalypse. They can’t all be winners. Also exciting though, they could redo classic stories the original run of movies got way wrong. That’s where Dark Phoenix comes in.The movie’s been through a delay and two weeks of reshoots, but we now have the first trailer. Definitive proof that X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a movie that’s coming out. And you know? It doesn’t look that bad. The current cast of the X-Men movies is great, and it’ll be fun to see an almost entirely new creative team take on this story. One major point in its favor: It looks nothing like X-Men: The Last Stand.It definitely looks like another one of these, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. With the exception of Apocalypse, the X-Men movies since First Class have been enjoyable at least. The action looks good, and a more in-depth look into Jean Grey’s past could be interesting. There’s just not all that much new or exciting going on here. It’s another X-Men movie. It could be a very good one, but we won’t know for sure until it comes out. That might partially be because Phoenix isn’t a particularly flashy or strange-looking villain. She’s essentially a much more powerful, much more violent Jean Grey. That could actually work in the movie’s favor. No chance of a rubbery Apocalypse rearing its fake-looking head. Also, Sophie Turner is a great actor, and, as we’ve seen in Game of Thrones, she can play the duality in a role like Jean Grey/Phoenix very well.X-Men: Dark Phoenix will arrive in theaters February 14, 2019.Photo via MarvelBefore we see Dark Phoenix though, there’s another non-MCU Marvel movie on the way. Venom comes out soon, which means it’s time for the actors to make the rounds and try to get as many fans into seats as possible. By now, we’ve seen almost all of the footage Sony Pictures is going to show us of the movie, so actor Tom Hardy is letting some interesting details about the making of the film loose. Specifically, how he chose to play the character. In an interview with RTE Entertainment, Hardy revealed he based his portrayal of Eddie Brock on UFC fighter Conor McGregor. Yeah. That certainly adds some context to what we’ve seen in the trailers. I mean, I’ve never personally heard McGregor talk about turds in the wind… but you can picture it, right?“There was an aspect the studio wanted somebody who could fight, which they always do in these sort of hero movies. They want somebody who can have a scrap. Conor obviously wants to have a scrap with everybody, so that’s useful,” he said. Well, he’s not wrong about that. And hey, Venom is also an unrepentant heel who’s only kept around because of the sheer amount of money he makes the company. But hey, an actor draws from all sorts of places when playing a role. Hardy says we’re not going to recognize anything specifically borrowed from the fighter. “It was more of an interior choice if that makes sense,” Hardy said.We’ll see many more of Hardy’s internal and external choices when Venom comes to theaters October 5.Sean Gunn (Photo via Marvel)Over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, drama and speculations are still rising from Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s firing last summer. With the movie put on indefinite hold while Disney tries to line up a new director, questions about how much of Gunn’s vision will remain intact continue to be raised. Early reports said that while Gunn was out as director, Disney still wanted to use his script for the movie. An interview with the director’s brother, actor Sean Gunn who plays Ravager Kraglin in the Guardians movies, appears to confirm that is the case.Speaking to Tulsa World, Sean Gunn said that while he knows all the secrets we’re desperately trying to find out about Avengers 4, he still has no idea what the plans are for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. “I know that Disney still wants to make the movie. I know that they have every intention of using the script that my brother wrote. Obviously, that was a very unfortunate situation for everybody, most of all him, but I am also somebody who had been preparing to spend half a year making that movie and now that’s up in the air,” he said.So despite the indefinite hold, Disney and Marvel still want the movie to happen, and they want to use the already-finished script James Gunn wrote. That’s a little reassuring at least. Guardians of the Galaxy would feel even weirder if anyone else was behind the dialog. Sean Gunn acknowledges that it’s tricky to find another director who’s able to step into a job like this, and then get all the actors together, who are now working on other projects. You know, it would seem to me you could solve a lot of problems here by rehiring the guy you let a bunch of Twitter trolls bully you into firing, Disney. Just saying.But that’s probably not going to happen. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on the other hand, likely is. There’s at least a desire to see the trilogy through. “I had not been contacted at all for a while, but I was recently contacted by Marvel saying, ‘Yeah, we do plan to make this movie. We’re just not sure when yet,’” Sean Gunn said.Oh, and about those Avengers 4 secrets? He’s not telling. All he will say is, after reading the script and shooting Avengers 4, he likes it more than Avengers Infinity War. Well, that’s exciting to hear. After Infinity War floored us last April, it’s direct sequel has some Thanos-sized shoes to fill.We’ve got a list of every comic book TV show that’s in production, including all the Marvel Netflix shows.

Odierno Remains Anxious over Armys Declining End Strength

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno on Wednesday warned that the service risks sacrificing its long-term viability if stringent spending caps remain in place.“I believe this nation is at an important inflection point, specifically regarding national security,” Odierno said during his last Pentagon press briefing as he prepares to retire from the Army after almost 40 years of service. “Our security environment remains uncertain and dynamic,” he said, “with increasing requirements on our military while we continue to have decreasing resources in our military. This is of great concern to me.”With an ever-growing list of global crises, the Army is in jeopardy of becoming too small, Odierno told Army Times earlier this week. “If we get small enough where some of these [world] leaders don’t believe the Army can respond or deter them, if you can’t … deter them from believing they can accomplish something … that increases the threats and danger to the United States,” Odierno said. “And I don’t know what that level is, but I think we’re getting dangerously close to that level now.”The Army’s active-duty end strength has dropped from 570,000 to 490,000 since 2012, by eliminating 13 brigade combat teams. In July the service announced plans to cut 40,000 more soldiers by the end of fiscal 2018. Officials will be forced to shed an additional 30,000 soldiers — reaching a force of 420,000 — by FY 2019 if the Budget Control Acts caps are re-imposed next year.As of the end of July, more than 177,000 soldiers were deployed, forward stationed or assigned to more than 150 countries on at least five of the world’s continents, according to the Times. As recently as a couple of years ago, many of the hotspots where the Army is engaged now had not yet emerged.“There wasn’t much discussion about Russia. In fact, nobody talked about going back to Iraq. There was no ISIL,” he said. “We’re trying to work all these issues simultaneously, and you have to have enough size to respond when something goes bad. That’s the concern,” Odierno said.last_img read more

Googles new Privacy Chief officer proposes a new framework for Security Regulation

first_imgGoogle announced a new Chief Privacy Officer as Keith Enright, yesterday, who has served a decade at leading Google’s Privacy Legal team. Enright has always been heavily involved in speaking out regarding Google’s Privacy and Security regulations. As a Chief Privacy Officer, Enright will be responsible for setting the privacy program at Google. This includes updating the security tools, policies, and practices as user-focused. “My team’s goal is to help you enjoy the benefits of technology while remaining in control of your privacy” mentions Enright in the Google outreach page. Google has already been taking measures when it comes to security as it launched a “Protect your Election program”, last month, which included security policies to defend against the state-sponsored phishing attacks. “This is an important time to take on this new role. There is real momentum to develop baseline rules of the road for data protection. Google welcomes this and supports comprehensive, baseline privacy regulation. People deserve to feel comfortable that all entities that use personal information will be held accountable for protecting it” as per the Google blog. Lately, there’s been a lot of companies raising voice against security-related issues. For instance, YouTube’s CBO and German OpenStreetMap, spoke out against the Article 13 of EU’s controversial copyright law. In light of organizations citing EU’s privacy laws as strict, Enright proposed a new Privacy framework which includes Google’s view on the requirements, scope, and enforcement expectations in data protection laws. This framework has been established using privacy frameworks, and the services that depend on personal data. Also, it will be complying with the evolving data protection laws around the world. “These principles help us evaluate new legislative proposals and advocate for responsible, interoperable and adaptable data protection regulations. How these principles are put into practice will shape the nature and direction of innovation”, says Enright. Principles in the new framework are based on established privacy regimes. These are applicable to organizations which are responsible for making decisions about the collection and use of personal information. Enright will be discussing the principles in the framework and Google’s work on privacy and security with the U.S. Senate later this week. The new framework states the requirements, scope, and accountability in data protection laws as follows: Requirements Collecting and using personal information responsibly. Maintaining Transparency is mandatory for helping individuals be informed. Placing reasonable limitations on the means of collecting, using, and disclosing personal information. Maintaining the quality of personal information. Make it practical for individuals so that they can control the use of personal information. Giving individuals an ability to access, correct, delete and download personal information if it’s about them. Requirements needed to secure personal information should be included. Scope and Accountability Holding organizations accountable for compliance. More focus on the risk of harm to individuals and communities. Direct consumer services should be distinguished from enterprise services. Personal information should be defined flexibly to ensure the proper incentives and handling. Rules should be applied to all organizations that process personal information. Regulations should be designed for improving the ecosystem and accommodating the changes in technology and norms. A geographic scope that accords with international norms should be applied. Encouraging global interoperability. “Sound practices combined with strong and balanced regulations can help provide individuals with confidence that they’re in control of their personal information,” says Enright.

The EverShrinking Pool of Refinance Candidates

first_img in Daily Dose, News, Origination The data shows that the mortgage rates of most current homeowners are low enough to where refinancing would not make financial sense.  But what about those homeowners with higher mortgage rates?Many of those high-interest rate borrowers may not have an incentive to refinance their mortgages either, according to CoreLogic’s September 2016 MarketPulse released Wednesday.As of May 2016, approximately 41 percent of residential mortgages representing 31 percent of outstanding unpaid principal balance (UPB) had mortgage rates of greater than 4.38 percent, which is approximately 100 basis points higher than the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has been for the last few months, according to CoreLogic. That 41 percent breaks down to 18 percent with rates between 4.38 and 5 percent and 23 percent with rates higher than 5 percent.The serious delinquency rate (90 days or more overdue or in foreclosure) tends to be higher for homeowners with higher interest rates. The average serious delinquency rate nationwide for all mortgages is 2.9 percent, according to the latest CoreLogic National Foreclosure Report; for mortgages with rates between 5 and 6, the serious delinquency rate jumps to 4 percent; for mortgages with rates between 6 and 7 percent, the serious delinquency rate jumps up to about 7 percent; and approximately 12 percent of mortgages with rates higher than 7 percent are in serious delinquency (four times the national average).“This explains why a portion of these borrowers haven’t refinanced,” CoreLogic Principal Economist Molly Boesel said. “They are behind on their payments and most likely wouldn’t be able to qualify for a new mortgage.”The number of “in the money” borrowers for whom refinancing would make sense shrinks even further when credit score is figured in. When a borrower’s mortgage becomes 30 days or more past due, it adversely affects that borrower’s credit. And the share of mortgages that has ever been 30 days or more past due, or the “ever-30” rate, also climbs higher along with higher mortgage rates. Approximately half of mortgages with rates of 7 percent or higher have been 30 or more days delinquent at some point.When ever-30 borrowers and loans held in private securities (not owned by the government and therefore are not eligible for FHFA’s Home Affordable Refinance Program) are removed from the pool, the share of “in the money” borrowers with rates higher than 5 percent shrinks to 13 percent (representing only 7 percent of UPB).Further reducing the incentive for high-interest rate borrowers to refinance is the comparatively low UPB for those borrowers. CoreLogic’s data shows that the average UPB on loans got lower as rates climbed. Mortgage loans with rates of up to 5 percent averaged close to $200,000 in UPB; by comparison, those loans with rates of 7 percent or higher had an average of approximately $53,000 in UPB.“Without considering credit impairments or investor type, we found a large share of mortgages that appeared to be ripe for refinancing, with 23 percent of outstanding first mortgages having rates above 5 percent,” Boesel said. “Once removing loans that are seriously delinquent, have ever ben delinquent, or are in private mortgage pools, the share of mortgages above 5 percent fell to 13 percent. Of this remaining group, average loan balances tended to be small, indicating that while mortgage rates are near historic lows, there may not be many borrowers left who have the incentive or are eligible to refinance.”Borrowers with mortgages owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac may still have an incentive to refinance. The Federal Housing Finance Agency estimated in its Q2 Refinance Report that there are still more than 323,000 U.S. borrowers  eligible for HARP who have a financial incentive to refinance, as of the first quarter of 2016. FHFA said these borrowers meet the basic HARP eligibility requirements: have a remaining balance of $50,000 or more on their mortgage, have a remaining term on their loan of greater than 10 years, and their mortgage interest rate is at least 1.5 percent higher than current market rates.”Click here to view the entire CoreLogic September 2016 MarketPulse.

This year, he’s definitely moved into the special category because he’s done it consistently,” said Whisenhunt on the Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf show Monday.

NEW YORK — Jennifer Pinckney was hiding under a de

first_img NEW YORK — Jennifer Pinckney was hiding under a desk holding the mouth of her then-6-year-old daughter when Dylann Roof fired more than 70 shots in Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine black worshippers.The new documentary, “Emanuel,” explores life after the tragic shooting on June 17, 2015, as family members, friends and the community try to heal through faith and forgiveness.Pinckney’s husband, the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, was one of the nine killed by Roof, who sat through 45 minutes of Bible study at the church before firing shots. Pinckney and her daughter, Malana, were in the reverend’s office when they heard gun shots in another room.“It brings it all back for me,” Pinckney said of watching “Emanuel,” which opens in theatres nationwide for a limited run on Monday and Wednesday . Oscar winner Viola Davis and NBA star Steph Curry are executive producers.It’s emotional. I can’t help but to relive what happened.”Roof was convicted of federal hate-crime and obstruction-of-religion charges and sentenced to death.Before the attack, the then-21-year-old had told a friend that he intended to kill people at the historic black church to start a race war. Emanuel is the oldest African Methodist Episcopal church in the U.S. South.Pinckney said she hopes the film, directed by Brian Ivie, “kind of opens people’s eyes.”“It’s like an awareness,” she said. “We have to get to that point where we start respecting, and showing more love and more care, and coming together, (and) becoming one unity.”At a bond hearing days after the attack, some of the victims’ family members offered Roof forgiveness and said they were praying for him, even as they described the pain of their losses. Emmy-winning actress Mariska Hargitay, a co-producer of “Emanuel,” was touched when she saw the way the family members reacted.“We’re all fascinated by people who can do things that we can’t do. I’m watching a movie (where) a group of people were loving at the highest level. You feel like these people are shamans and possessed something deeply extra, and the extra was indeed grace for me,” Hargitay said.“Like everyone does in seeing a movie like this, it goes straight to the core and straight to our souls,” she said. “I experienced deep outrage and sorrow and anger and all that for those we lost. I also experienced hope.”The shooter killed six women and three men. Eight died at the scene, while the ninth, Daniel Simmons, died at the hospital. Then-U.S. President Barack Obama delivered the eulogy at the funeral at the Rev. Clementa Pinckney’s funeral and led the singing of “Amazing Grace.”Jennifer Pinckney said thanks to counselling and prayer, she and Malana, now 10, are doing OK. She also has a 15-year-old daughter.But Pinckney, like many other family and friends of those who died, said it’s hard moving on with life after losing loved ones.“We’ve already started college tours and stuff like that — kind of difficult just to think on that level, but also to think this is something that we’re doing that Clementa’s not sharing,” she said. “That he’s not physically with us.”Despite her own grief and loss, she hopes the community can continue to come together.“You have to learn to respect each other’s differences. No two people are alike,” she said. “That’s something that I hope people will get from this (film) — to love more and get right with God.”Mesfin Fekadu, The Associated Press FILE – In this June 19, 2015 file photo, police tape surrounds the parking lot behind the AME Emanuel Church as FBI forensic experts work the crime scene, in Charleston, S.C. he new documentary, “Emanuel,” explores life after the tragic shooting took place on June 17, 2015, as family members, friends and the community try to heal through faith and forgiveness.

Cypriots charged with money laundering in Fiji

I wish to meet him if he wins" And he added: "Whoever wins we wish him well . And let us accept the verdict" Later on Sunday Mnangagwa said in a video posted on Facebook that Chamisa had "forged a deal" with Mugabe and that a vote for the opposition leader amounted to an endorsement of the old order "We can no longer believe that his intentions are to transform Zimbabwe and rebuild our nation" the president said Chamisa meanwhile said at a news conference that he welcomed the vote of Mugabe or any other Zimbabwean and that "you don’t discriminate against voters" Many in Zimbabwe knew no other leader but Mugabe who led the country for 37 years after independence from white minority rule in 1980 What began with optimism crumbled into repression of the opposition alleged vote-rigging violent land seizures from white farmers and years of

statement he asserted that his long stay in office had been free from meddling: "It was not the army that ensured I remained in power" He blamed "evil and malicious characters" for his resignation which was met with a joyous outpouring by thousands of people in the capital Harare and elsewhere "I was a fool to have him next to me" he said of Mnangagwa whom he accused of conniving with the military chief to pull off a "coup" Mugabe said he resigned to avoid "bloodshed" and defended his wife Grace who just months ago appeared to be positioning herself for the presidency: "Leave leave leave my wife alone" Zimbabwe’s former leader who appeared to have finally allowed his hair to go gray spent the final question musing on his legacy reminding people of his years in prison during the
